News from the trading desk…

Trading the AUDJPY with ROBOS has been a dream these past few weeks. The strategy triggers have captured momentum thrusts almost perfectly, and those thrusts have been strong enough to deliver above average returns. This week saw positions entered on each day, with only one day (two entries) resulting in losers. ROBOS ended the week 11.85% up on the previous Friday close.

EscM15 was the complete reverse, losing three out of four trades, and reducing the return by 5.39%. This strategy, although gaining over 100% since the beginning of the year, appears to be struggling with market uncertainty, fuelled in no small part by the U.S. election result, in combination with the Fed’s posturing on interest rates, and the continuing fallout from Brexit and rise of radical right politics in Europe.

So, what should one do with a strategy that is not performing to its optimum potential? Well, I’m going to give it one more week with its current settings. If there is no improvement in that time, I will temporarily withdraw it and conduct some indepth testing over the holiday period, while continuing to trade the ROBOS strategy alone.

Catch you next weekend…
